YONKERS, NY, Thursday, May 18, 2017—A reminder regarding Yonkers Raceway’s return to Sunday matinees—May 28th—and a first post of 12:30 PM.
Races 5 through (1:45 PM) through 8 (3:15 PM) are the ‘French’ trots, featuring oversized fields at the mile-and-a-quarter distance.

Also returning is the ‘New York, New York Double,’ which in this instance includes the third race from Belmont (post time 2:32 PM) and the seventh from Yonkers (post time 2:45 PM). Program pages for this wager ($1 minimum, 18½ percent takeout) shall be sent when available.
